    The churchyard of St Thomas a'Beckett, and its Chapel-of-Ease at Felliscliffe hold within them a wealth of local heritage via their Memorial Inscriptions and Burial Records. Why so many infant deaths, what was happening in society at the time of burial, was there a war or an illness affecting the population? How many local families are represented there and are there any well known names - or not so well known but with an interesting story attached? Is the design of the Memorial interesting in terms of its art work or the language used?This section of our website aims to list photographs of all Memorials, together with their Inscriptions and Church Records so that such questions may be answered by browsing or searching both now and in the foreseeable future - even long after some inscriptions may have faded beyond readability.

Community-led Housing in rural North and East Yorkshire: Parish Council Survey

Rural Action Yorkshire has begun a project to look at the potential for community-led housing in North and East Yorkshire. Part of the work involves establishing the level of interest across the area. Parish and Town Councils can have a key role in supporting or providing community led housing schemes.

The aim of this survey is to find out if community-led housing might make a difference in your village or town and whether, as a Parish Council, you would like to find out more about it.

What is community-led housing?

Community-led housing schemes have six main features:

·         They put local communities in the driving seat - You decide where homes are built, what they look like and decide how local people are selected for the homes provided. You create community assets which can generate income for your town or village to support other local priorities

·         They are usually small scale – most developments are less than 10 homes and some are much smaller. No two developments are the same.

·         Although most schemes are usually set up and run by local people in their own communities, many are also supported by housing associations, local authorities or regional and national organisations

·         They provide affordable homes for rent, shared ownership, sale or self-build on sites that are often difficult or even impossible for mainstream housing providers to develop

·         Schemes meet long-term local housing needs, by the community exercising full control over how and where the homes are provided and retaining a legal and/or financial interest in them, ensuring they will be available to local people who need them and at a price they can afford.

·         Community-led housing is not for profit, involving considerable voluntary effort from those who decide to become involved. It’s an effort that several hundred communities across the country have already made, with many successful developments initiated by Parish Councils.

Community-led housing schemes are becoming very popular across the UK, but there is currently only one scheme in North and East Yorkshire. This project aims to change that by encouraging more communities here to take up the challenge. Let’s put community-led housing on the map!

The survey will remain open for responses until the 31st October 2016. However, to encourage early responses, all surveys received back by 23rd September 2016 will be entered into a prize draw to win £50 towards the work of either your Parish Council or Village Hall.

Families urged to come forward for help with winter bills

ONE-OFF GRANTS are available to families and individuals on low incomes in the run-up to winter.

More than 20 energy companies offer the Warm Home Discount scheme, which gives eligible customers a one-off grant towards their electricity bill or prepayment meter during the winter.

Schemes are set to open from around August time, and the payment is expected to remain the same as previous years at £140.

Families on low incomes or welfare are encouraged to get ahead of the queue and register their interest now with the support of the Warm and Well in North Yorkshire project, which seeks to raise awareness of cold homes.

Although criteria for the grant varies according to the energy supplier, generally customers qualify automatically if they are in receipt of the Guarantee element of Pension Credit.

Households might also be eligible for the payment if they receive certain means-tested benefits or have an annual income of less than £16,000 and there is a child under-5, someone with a disability, or someone elderly living at the property. In this case residents have to apply for the £140.

Kate Urwin, the Yorkshire Energy Doctor, who is working with Warm and Well said:

“Customers can either apply online via their electricity supplier or call them up. It is a good idea to get in quickly as some schemes are first come first served and close when they have reached their maximum number of applicants.

“The £140 payment can go a long way to easing financial pressure on families during the winter, and is set up in such a way that it reaches those who need it the most.”

For support with the Warm Home Discount application as well as with wider energy matters such as debt or switching, families are also able to contact Kate directly. She can be reached on 07738 818391 or 01757 249100.

Families can also talk to Warm and Well in North Yorkshire for a wider variety of support around being cold at home. Please visit www.first4contact.org or call 01904 704177.
